How to send "out of office" autoresponding mails to contacts in the public folder

Hi there,

Due to this notorious issue, that spambots keep sending mails over "normal"/common mail addresses and this mail providers will move my domain to the spam folder because they receive my automated answer frequently, I wanted to configurate my Outlook/Exchange so that it only sends autorespondings to those contacts that are in my list.

However, in our company, people do not have their contacts in the "official" Outlook- Contacts folder, but in a public CRM Folder whitch can be turned visible in Outlook by pressing Ctrl+6 (Folder List).

So my question now is: Is it possible, and how, to configurate Outlook, to only send auto "out of office" mails to the Contacts I have in the public folder?

Thanks for any advice that will lead to an answer!

Unfortunately its not possible with out of office, its either All Or Nothing

What you can do though, is create a new contact group in you contacts

Add all of the users you would like Out of Office messages to go to.

The simply create a Rule in Outlook for when mail arrives, from specific people or group
Send a Template

The setup the template to look like your out of office mail item
